Self-care for the creative soul
What I want to urge you to do is to take a little risk and to open up to your circle of friends and family, and to try and share some of the painful stuff that you’re going through.
As a creative person you’re often doing creative things for other people and you need to remember to do that stuff for yourself.
As a creative person we have tools at our disposal that other people don’t have.
Know that you’re not alone and that stuff will get better over time however painful it is at the moment.
If your soul is invisible you need to feed it invisible things like love, laughter, joy, silence and compassion. That is what your soul is craving.
Don’t be a dick to yourself.
That feeling of depression is so hard to put into words. I feel like it’s a kind of silent scream inside you that’s eating you up. It’s just nibbling away bits and pieces of you, and suddenly there’s a huge chunk of you missing.
It was kind of like my behaviour started to shift and that the depression had become a trigger and a way for me to explore a new side of my personality.
Because of the pace of modern life, it’s getting more and more important to seek out silence in our lives.
Too often I’ll be too critical of my actions or I’ll beat myself up that I haven’t done. You wouldn’t like someone like that in your life as a friend, so why would you let that voice live inside your head?
If you’re not willing to love yourself than how can you expect anyone else to.
If your soul is invisible you need to feed it invisible things like love, laughter and joy.
